Delegate Roslyn Tyler Amendment Returns Fines and Fees For Traffic Tickets to Cities and Counties

Thanks to Delegates Roslyn Tyler and Riley Ingram's collaborative efforts this 2016 session, localities can now have additional money for their local budgets after July 1, 2016.

The 2015 state budget reduced the amount of money returned to the counties and cities for traffic violations and fees on Interstates and local roads. Last year according to the Sheriff’s Association survey, 75,969 citations were issued on interstate highways for speeding; 942 charges were made for drug violations; 2.250 stranded or broken down motorist were assisted; 81 DUI’s issued and; 130 apprehensions of persons wanted by the police.

The City of Emporia, City of Hopewell and County of Dinwiddie lost more revenue than any other locality in Virginia. The amount of money loss created a shortfall for law enforcements and Sheriff Departments in the Board of Supervisors’ and City Council’s budgets. The money returned to the localities will provide more money for selective enforcement, education, and utilities.

The following localities in the 75th District loss money for fines and fees for tickets written on the interstate and roads to the state: City of Emporia ($95,115), City of Franklin ($32,553), Greensville County ($41,495), Brunswick County ($2,648) Dinwiddie County ($536,407), Sussex County ($30,963), Lunenburg County ($36,073), Isle of Wight County ($153,929), Southampton County ($29,605), Surry County ($30,963). A total of approximately $989,751 can be saved for localities in the 75th District.

Delegate Roslyn Tyler’s amendment item 3-6. 05 in HB 30 was approved during the Veto Session with a vote of 90 to 10 in the House, 39 to 0 in the Senate. This amendment allows all money for ticket violations to return to local government treasure offices. This amendment effected over 23 localities across Virginia. The greatest victory for was for rural Virginia.
